Well I feel like a duck on water. On the surface, things have been calm for our farm but in actuality, we've been going full steam ahead at break-neck pace. When our Kickstarter project failed to be funded, most people thought we would have to discontinue our plans. However, it was just an opportunity to think about our project another way.
We began to look at all of the things that we wanted to do and prioritized. We thought long and hard about what it was going to take to accomplish each task. Then we tightened our belts and pinch our pennies to get things moving. We put a contract on the city lot which gave us 12 months to get our funding together for closing. Then we secured a rental agreement on the same property so that we could actually use the land prior to closing. This allowed us to construct our raised beds on the lot, bring soil and get things ready.
The one task that must be accomplished if our project is to succeed is raising the funds for closing. We have re-launched a Kickstarter campaign focused on raising the funds for closing. In less than 24 hours we were 50% funded. We have 28 more days to reach our goal or we do not receive any funds (no matter how close we come).
